"Over the past six months, Mr. Chairman, the coalition has grown steadily from 50 nations to, as the secretary said, 70 nations today. Thirty-seven of our coalition partners are currently engaged in and around Afghanistan in support of our operations, and 24 nations have forces located inside Afghanistan as we speak. "
